When? Where? What are you interested in? It would be better to have some idea, then ask specific questions.

It's hard to answer such questions.It would take a book to answer.
Why don't you google firts, then come here and ask specific questions.

Thai, look at the Rick Steves book for each country in Europe that you want to go to. I suggest first look at the book "Rick Steves' GERMANY and AUSTRIA".
(All of Rick's travel guide books are in public Libraries). In each of Rick's books on a country in Europe the INTRODUCTION at the beginning of the book has "Sightseeing Priorities". Choose some of those places, in each country in Europe that you will go to. Read descriptions and history of those places in travel guide books by Rick Steves, Lonely Planet, ROUGH GUIDE, FROMMERS, CADOGANS guides.
A list of the annual festivals are in some travel guide books on a country in Europe.

We just wanted a general "must sees" for each country. We've read some books, googled alot but want more of a personal opinion.
thanks

Any guidebook will tell you the "must sees", and they will probably be mostly the same ones in every book. And you'll find everyone has their own opinion of what they would consider worth doing in any given city or area. What you will want to do depends on YOUR own interests.

Thai, while I was looking up some info on festivals for you (that I've gone to), I came across this great website that has lots of info www.europeforvisitors.com There's even lots of pictures and accommodation listings--even camping. Sitting with the computer in my lap and looking at this website is more fun and interesting than thumbing through pages and pages of some tour books. I'll get back to you with some of my ideas on "what to see".
